It's not every day you get to come across something in the restaurant industry you've never seen before. There's only a finite number of cuisines, so the majority of restaurants are all variations of them. Very rarely do you find something that seems almost entirely original, an out of the box concept that works because its so uniquely great.
Rocket Dog Brats and Brew is one. You've seen hot dogs and bratwursts, and probably had Weinerschnitzel at least once in your life. Rocket Dog takes the concept in an entirely new direction.
It's not just hot dogs, bratwursts, sausages, and hot links. It's almost like each one is its own type of cuisine. The menu is full of things you're unlikely to find anywhere else, like the Bahn Mi Dog (Sweet chicken sausage on a grilled baguette with Sriracha mayo, crunchy pickled veggies, fresh jalapeño and cilantro) or the Napa Dog (Sweet chicken sausage on a grilled baguette with fig-onion jam, crumbled goat cheese, balsamic reduction drizzle and fresh basil chiffonade). Go look for that on the menu at Wienerschnitzel! There's also quite a few unique sandwiches and local beers to choose from. Everything is natural and locally sourced, which makes it even better.
If you're thinking it sounds delicious, it is and you should definitely put it into your regular rotation. I've been there myself a handful of times, and it's like nothing else you've ever tried! I've had hot dogs and sandwiches before, but Rocket Dog just makes each one of them such a creative experience. You'll see that the reason they've done so well is because there's nothing else like them.
Rocket Dog was created just 5 years ago, and now has two locations: one on Shaw and Blackstone and the other at Willow and Nees.
Something else you'll love about Rocket Dog is that they're regularly involved in quite a few animal related charities including animal shelters, pet adoptions, and rescues. They routinely put on events at their locations and donate proceeds to whichever cause they're sponsoring. As you can guess based off the name, most of it is related to dogs. Two of the owners are actually veterinarians, hence the animal theme, so they have a special place in their hearts for helping out dogs in the local community!
If you're reading this, you're probably now wondering how you can eat some of their amazing food and support a business that gets behind such great causes! Well you're in luck, because they are still open for takeout and curbside pick up! You can also find them for delivery on DoorDash and UberEats.
Even better, they currently have the following promotions:
Sounds great, right? It really is! You'll be glad you made the decision to try it out!
